Activity 1: Whale & Arctic Wildlife Safari
Cruise with us to the whale sighting area along the coast of Northern Norway. Enjoy the Arctic scenery along the way and get to observe the wildlife in their natural habitat. The humpback and killer whales migrate to Northern Norway, along the coast of Troms to feed on the Atlantic herring throughout the winter months (mid-October until the end of January). During these months, we organize Whale & Arctic Wildlife Safari from Tromsø by boat. Our catamaran departs from the harbour of Tromsø center. The direction and duration of the tour will depend on the weather conditions and the most probable whale sightings. Some days we need to travel up to three hours to reach the whale sighting area. The journey by boat offers scenic views as we cruise between islands and fjords with an amazing mountain backdrop. Once we have spotted the whales, we spend as much time as possible in the sighting area. We drift along with the whales during this time, and we gently follow their path with awareness of our presence in their natural environment.
The duration of the tour is from 5 up to 7 hours. Our boat is spacious with a comfortable, warm lounge with panoramic windows, a small kiosk, lavatories, and several outside decks.
- We cannot guarantee whale sightings as we depend on marine life in their natural habitat on this wildlife tour. Sighting might also be affected by difficult weather conditions.
- If you don't see any whales on your tour, you can book a second tour for free. (Subject to availability on the next tour)
- Keep in mind that the weather in the Arctic can be rough. If becoming seasick is your concern, we recommend taking seasickness medicine half an hour before the tour starts.
Meeting Time & Place: 08:45 at the harbourside of Kystens Hus, Stortorget 1, Tromsø.
Activity 2: Northern Lights Chase to Private Aurora Camps
Maximize your chances of seeing the Northern Lights on this exciting tour combining Northern Lights Chase with a visit to our Aurora Camp. We set off by bus from Tromsø to start our chase for the Northern Lights. Our guides will find the best photo stops with good sky conditions and a scenic backdrop. Our destination will be one of our exclusive aurora camps with comfortable lavvus (Sami tents). The decision of which camp we will go to will depend on the weather conditions of the evening. At the camp, we will serve a warm stew (catered by Mathallen) and enjoy a warm beverage around the fire as we wait for the northern lights to occur. If you are lucky and the northern lights start flickering above in the sky, the guide will assist you to make your own photos and will take some portrait photos which will be sent to you afterward. Of course, we can’t offer any guarantees since the Northern Lights are a natural phenomenon, but we promise to use all our experience to maximize our chances of a successful chase
- Warm winter clothes, boots, and tripods are provided by us at the start of the tour.
- Please inform us in advance of allergies or any other dietary restrictions.
- There is no refund if the northern lights do not appear. However, you may book a second tour at a 50% discount.
